I'm An Inspirational Blogger Award

I was awarded the "I'm An Inspirational Blogger Award" by three bloggers! Thank you Miss Laurie from Old-Fashioned Charm, Miss Dashwood from Yet Another Period Drama Blog, and Abby from Newly Impassioned Soul.

1. Be sure to post the award on your blog, for all of your readers to admire!
2. You will need to link back to the person who nominated you!
3. Make sure you tell your readers 7 random facts about yourself!
4. Also mention your favourite hobby, colour and food!
5. Pass this award on to your 10 inspirational bloggers! (You can choose the person to nominated you!)

Got #1 done, since you all are reading this post :-D

I'll redo #2. Thanks Miss Laurie, Miss Dashwood, and Abby! Be sure to visit their blogs!

#3. 7 Random facts about myself! (With pictures)

1. I enjoy Christmas at any time of the year. As a matter of fact, I really want it to be Christmas right now! I like the overall feel to Christmas: it's a joyous time in which we come together to celebrate the birth of Jesus, the Christ.
2. I'm planning on double majoring in Computer Science and Accounting. I really enjoy helping people out with the computer, and to me Accounting is like a big puzzle that I enjoy doing.

3. I love historical fashion (as if you all couldn't tell!). I like to study it in my free time. I've studied fashions from 1700 to 1900, though I'm becoming more and more interested in Edwardian fashions. My favorite fashion era has to be the Regency Era!
4. I started to play the piano in January of this year. I'm currently trying to learn an easy version of Moonlight Sonata, but I also try to go into my Jane Austen music book and try to play some of the songs in there.

5. I enjoy puzzles. I really enjoy Sudoku puzzles, but I also like crossword puzzles. A couple times when I was sick, my parents would buy me a book of puzzles to help pass the time; it helped!
6. I taught myself how to sew, embroider, tat (a form of lace making; see picture to the right), cross-stitch, and some crocheting. For sewing, I watched my grandma sew one time when I was younger and I picked up on it quickly; so my mom bought me a kid's sewing craft book and I've been sewing ever since (though now I sew clothes and historical costumes instead of craft items). For embroidery, tatting, and crocheting, I just found books in Hobby Lobby or JoAnn Fabrics and taught myself through the books without observation.

7. When I do watch TV (which is getting less and less often now-a-days), I like to watch older shows. One of the shows I like to watch is Bonanza.

#4. Favorite Hobby, Color, and Food
Hobby - I have a number of hobbies, so I don't think I can pick just one. I'm just going to list my hobbies here:
* Computers
*Video Games
*Historical Fashion
*Reading ("I am not a great reader, and I have pleasure in many things." - Elizabeth Bennet)

Color - I really like Blue. It's a very mellow color and easy on the eyes. It's not wild, but mild.

Food - I really like half of the Bacon Turkey Bravo sandwich and a cup of French Onion soup from Panera! Mmmmmm!
Hey! Someone had the same idea as me!

#5. Nominate 10 Bloggers
Here we go: 10 Blogs to Nominate.

 God Bless,
 God Bless, Miss Elizabeth Bennet


  1. Thanks for passing this award along. It was fun reading your answers. Thanks for awarding Austen Efforts but I probably won't do the award again.
    Puzzles are so much fun! I like Sudoku puzzles too, I'm not as good at crosswords but all kinds of word and number puzzles are so much fun!

    Wow, you do tatting? That's intricate work, I've seen it done before and admire you teaching yourself!
    Bonanza is a great show. I love all the old shows and usually watch some in the afternoon with the elderly patient I care for. She likes The Waltons especially but we also watch The Big Valley too.
    Oh, I adore Panera Bread! That's my favorite sandwich too! Only I usually get the broccoli cheddar soup or mac & cheese instead. Yum!

  2. Thank you!! =)

    You know, Moonlight Sonata was the first 'real' piano song I learned. I couldn't read notes though; my very musically-knowledgeable brother wrote in the note names for me.
    I got the idea from Persuasion (2007)

  3. Thank you!

    I love old shows too (The Dick Van Dyke Show, I Love Lucy, and Hogan's Heroes, especially Green Acres is also always good for a laugh:)My sister adores Bonanza! :)

    I just started teaching myself piano this year,too! A friend just loaned me a Jane Austen piano book, and it's pretty advanced for me, but I'm trying :)
